About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Everything Must Go: 1925

Everything Must Go: 1925

Washington, D.C., circa 1925. "J.C. Weedon & Co., Haines Bldg." Adolph Nachman's furniture store at Eighth Street and Pennsylvania Avenue S.E., with signs directing customers to the newer store at E and Eighth streets N.W. 8x10 inch safety negative, National Photo Company Collection. View full size.

 

That's my office

Third window from the middle! And thanks for the compliments -- I picked the colors for the last paint job!

Yes, apparently a fourth floor was added later and the front door was moved to the center column area where there was a window.

I love this old building. Great shot!

Below is the same view from January of 2010.

For Ladies And Gents

Help me George!
Is there a car wash around here?

Right now, the headlights are the only part that could shine on the 1925 Model T Touring.

A New Story

It looks like maybe they added another floor. There are windows all along the top along with the removal of the triangular pieces.

The mailbox is still there

And so is the Haines Building, minus the clock but looking much spiffier than it did in 1925.

Shocked (but happy) that it's still here

Much to my amazement, this building is still here and housing businesses after over 100 years.

What a mess!

Signs all faded, peeling paint on the window frames, tattered awning (behind the tree), no wonder Nachman moved!

Today

Great shot - I love that you have a lot in D.C., which is where I live. The triangular bits on the left roof are gone now, oddly.
